Phi Delta Theta was founded in 1848 at Miami University. The Iowa Delta Chapter of Phi Delta Theta was founded at Drake University in 1961. In 2009, our charter was suspended due to an alcohol related incident. For the past five years, Iowa Delta alumni have been working non-stop to bring Iowa Delta back to Drake. In fall 2014, the Iowa Delta Colony was established and in summer 2015, our refounding fathers moved back into a renovated chapter house. Iowa Delta now has 27 members and we look forward to adding more men to our brotherhood this fall.
